I thought this was somehow appropriate. Pretty hypnotic... Hey that would be a cool smiley - one being hypnotized with spirals in his eyes.

Hell any movie with that car in it is pure win.
What does defeat mean to you?

Nothing it will never come. Death before defeat. I don’t bend or break. I end, if I meet a foe capable of it. Victory is in forcing the opponent to back down. I do not. There is no defeat.

Thanks Mark, you're about as useful as a screen door on a battleship!

Thomas Wilson had some really great lines. :)

In the first movie, all of the characters have great scenes, but in the second, Thomas Wilson gets a lot more lines and screen time, and in the third, Christopher Lloyd gets to expand Doc's character. It makes for a great series, and a great example of how to write all-around enjoyable movies.

I'm glad I took the time to re-watch them, also. You get a lot more out of movies if you see them again at different points in your life.

There's also a lot of subtle details that Zemeckis tends to put in a lot of his films. So many details that one could not catch them all in one viewing.

I fully intend to buy a DeLorean in a couple of years. Sweetest ride ever, despite the fact that it's not really that great a car. :lol:

I would trade my DeLorean for a Hoverboard though.

My favorite moments are the end of part 2, Marty seeing Doc dissapear, then receiving a letter from him, then running up to 1955 Doc right after he had originally been sent back. The beginning of part 3, finding the DeLorean sealed up in a cave for 100 years was really cool to me for some reason.

I liked that whole setup as well. It was a lot better than the 'cliffhanger' at the end of part 1 (they had no idea they'd be making any sequels).

Agreed, although watching Marty and Jennifer gawk as Doc dumped beer and garbage into Mr. Fusion was a funny moment.

Like 'Twin Pines Mall' and 'Lone Pine Mall' and 'Clayton Ravine' and 'Eastwood Ravine'? :)

Exactly. And, at the beginning of Part 1, during the opening credits. The camera pans across several clocks (homage of 1960's The Time Machine). One of them has a figure hanging from one of the hands, foretelling the climatic sequence.

And, that's not all.

On st.com several years back, someone made a list of *everything*.
